Breaking down the barriers to quality care

  Saturday, April 21, 2018 Boston University School of Medicine 72 East Concord Street, Boston, MA Hiebert Lounge — 14th floor 8:30 am – 3:00 pm

People with multiple marginalized, intersecting identities face individual- and systems-level challenges in accessing medical, mental health, and social services. This student-organized event aims to provide training for students and those working in health-oriented professions, including social work, public health, medicine, community health work, nursing, and dentistry to provide better care and eliminate health inequities. The conference seeks to center voices of people with these identities and encourage interprofessional collaboration to break down silos. The conference will feature engaging TedX style presentations and practice-focused breakout sessions and panels.
